A note from the Director:

Please take note of our Summer library happenings.

Save the Date!  Join us for an Oakmont National Pub partnership on Tuesday, August 7 from 5:00-9:00pm.  Part of the proceeds of the evening will go towards the Library's Mobile Computer Lab project.  See details below.

Come to HTFL on Friday night, July 27 and listen to mandolin music and enjoy water ice--bring your lawn chair for an outside event (indoors if weather is stormy.)  

Programs continue through August-don't miss a thing!  

As you enjoy the rest of the summer, we here at HTFL are putting the final touches on our fall programming.  Stay tuned!

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please call me at
610-446-3082 x 213.

HTFL @ YOUR SERVICE

Book-A-Librarian

The Reference Department offers one-on-one computer lessons at specific times during the week. Library customers are allowed to book up to three sessions in a six month period. These appointments are meant to help customers learn a specific computer task, such as how to open up an e-mail account, use Facebook, download library books onto an e-reader, work on a resume, apply for a specific job online, do basic Word Processing or Excel skills, or perform other tasks that may need some initial assistance. For beginners, we encourage regular practice with mousing and other tutorials, and offer information on more in-depth computer classes around the area. There is no cost involved with our program.  Contact the Reference Department at 610-446-3082, ext. 201 to set up an appointment or if you have any questions.
